Eminem dresses up like Osama bin Laden and spoofs “The Sally Jesse Raphael
Show” in the video for his new single, “Without Me.”
Slim Shady shot the clip for the first single from The Eminem Show in
Los Angeles last weekend with director Joseph Kahn (Britney Spears, DMX),
according to his Interscope Records spokesperson. Dr. Dre, D12 and Obie
Trice, a new Shady Records artist, appear in the video.
“Without Me,” which is scheduled to debut at radio outlets later this month,
was described by a spokesperson as reminiscent of the lead singles from
The Slim Shady LP (“My Name Is”) and The Marshall Mathers LP
(“The Real Slim Shady”).
While The Eminem Show, which is due June 4 (moved from May 28), will
include some production from Dr. Dre, Eminem worked the boards on his own for most of the tracks (see “The Doc’s Diagnosis: Eminem Still Crazy” ).
The video for “Without Me” will debut on an episode of MTV’s “Making the Video” in
Eminem and D12 are scheduled to perform on “Saturday Night Live” on May 11.
